Considered pop art industrial paintingInfluenced by media and popular advertising Mixed text and imageArt known for having an unmistakably American qualityPrintmaker, painter
From a 1964 article in LIFE MagazineA critic of the New York Times, hedging only a bit, pronounced Roy Lichtenstein "one of the worst artists in America." Others insist that he is no artist at all, that his paintings of blown-up comic strips, cheap ads and reproductions are tedious copies of the banal. But an equally emphatic group of critics, museum officials and collectors find Lichtenstein's pop art "fascinating"," forceful", "starkly beautiful". Provocative though they are, Lichtenstein's paintings have done more than stir up controversy. They have done something significant to art.
From a 1966 Interview by BBC Third Programme with David SylvesterDavid Sylvester: What do you think of as the main sources of your language?
Roy Lichtenstein: Well, I think in some ways, really, Cubism, but of course cartooning itself and commercial art are obviously an influence. But I think the aesthetic influence on me is probably more Cubism than anything. I think even the cartoons themselves are influenced by Cubism, because the hard-edged character which is brought about by the printing creates a kind of cubist look which perhaps wasn't intended.
